Cella

everything! All of the text in my CP...all of the threads....

I didn't change anything (that's I know if...)

Have you tried dumping your history and restarting the browser?

Make sure you know your password. :)

That is, dump the cache. der

I have IE stupid.0...

I don't think that's it though. Like I know---but I have a brandnew laptop with the newest explorer then an old desktop with ancient IE and both are like this...

ever since that pumpkin appeared at the top of the page....hmmmm.

Mine isn't centered. I'm using Firefox. However, as a web designer, I can tell you what's going on. The pumpkin banner--IE is interpreting the code to center the pumpkin banner as a command to center the whole damn page. A silly CSS or HTML reading glitch in the IE browser.

Maybe a missing </CENTER> tag after the pumpkin image...

I've looked at it in IE8, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome (my current preference, btw)

I'm not getting centered anything but the ads at the top of the page.

This could be a corruption caused by one of the rotating ads up top, or one of those rare, mass hypnosis events.

I do hope not. Last time I had to buy morning after flowers for six women and the weather guy from Channel 9. (you know, the old one, with the bowtie. He was very sweet.)

Funny you should say that. I typed it both ways a couple of times as I couldn't remember what was right, and I'm obsessed with spell checking before posting on AW. In just 2 years here, I've forgotten how to spell in my mother tongue!

Cella. I don't understand that why don't you use Mozilla Firefox instead? That's much more reliable then IE under every possible system, be it XP (All service packs) or Vista (All possible versions) or anything else.

Nice avatar by the way. You have a cute dog. :)

Oh well, what do I know? :Shrug:Tell him the following: Explorer = ancient forgotten 20th century, Firefox = high tech 21st century. :) Also viruses, such as framer viruses likes the IE much-much better then FF and IE is much more vulnerable to attacks from websites.

Practically anything is better than IE. Stop using it– Web developers everywhere will thank you! You would not believe what web developers have to do to cater for IE... *shakes head in sorrow*
I'm a Safari person coz it's quicker than FF, but don't get Safari for Windows because that isn't so great.
I could use this point to do a mac-fangirl rant, on the subject of viruses and all, but I'll refrain. ^_~

Did you know that with a few short command prompt commands you can set it up so that every time he tries to open IE it shuts his computer down?

You can also edit it so that it gives him a funny error message too. Something along the lines of.

"Error: This program sucks so much that it has caused an uber error. Your computer will now shut down."

Hmmm... I'm always wondering how is it possible that people are still using IE. Anyway, I'm glad it's help for both of you. Also here is an advise: if it's slowing down, clear it's browsing cache sometimes (Ctrl+Shift+Del and in the menu check the desired part that you'd like the clear), because as the time is passing the cache will store some data from the websites that you visited before. Clear it sometimes, once in a month. It will help if it's slowing down a bit. :)

Have a nice browsing. ;)

aww, you're sweet :) Thanks....

It's coming along....I'm about to make a few revisions and send it to a coupla people to tell me what their thoughts are...that's always nerve wracking....no matter how nice I think they'll be.

Getting that last chapter done is tough. I get nervous because I'm worried about getting it right, then again, I just want to be done with it too....

Freelancer
10-25-2009, 06:08 AM
Don't be nervous and everything will be fine. Trust in yourself a bit.

Well, if you need an "unfriendly" and "tough" review in the future... well, you know where you can find me. I'm used to be the opposite and that's how my writer friends knows me. I'm always cruel and always telling my... well, honest opinion to point out mistakes, detail problems, etc, etc... regardless how much does it hurt sometimes. But as they used to say, it's always helping them. :)

Getting that last chapter done is tough.
Yes, especially if you need to tie up more then 1000 pages of sub-stories and the main arc from the previous and the upcoming chapters as the "last" chapter is not the last chapter in the novel, but it's around the middle-end of it as the last ones are done a long time ago. It's my bad habit and this is my curse. And now, my curse reached me. :)

It's strange, as I am quite sensitive, but I'm easy to crit for. I don't equate criticism with insults, unless they're aimed at me, rather than my writing.

I can take a rough crit about bad sentence structure, poor grammar, plot holes, etc., but the worst for me is if someone says my IDEA was bad. And that, really is purely opinion--unlike all those "rules".

Freelancer
10-25-2009, 06:21 AM
but the worst for me is if someone says my IDEA was bad.
There is no bad idea, just bad execution. Also, as English isn't my native language, I'm the last one who can criticize anyone's grammar. :D

It's strange, as I am quite sensitive, but I'm easy to crit for.You're not sensitive if you already know the difference between the two as... explanation below...
(If the insults are) aimed at me, rather than my writing.
That's a different story. In that case you have the right to scratch out the person's eyes and call it as a righteous self defense. :)

I like to think I'm a nicer person than that ;)

If I ask for someone's opinion I need to be prepared to take it, whatever it is. If it's unsolicited....there may be a bit of scratching that comes that, then, lol.

Freelancer
10-25-2009, 06:36 AM
So, how do you illustrate a project like that?Well, I'm also a graphic artist. Not an extremely pro, but I can do what is necessary. If you check the website in my signature, that's my WIP, all the draws were created by me. Now the illustrations will be similar, just in black and white and as it's a unique world, plus the illustrations are connecting the story, I'm the only one who knows how these things should really look like.

Cella

They'll be at the very last pages, around 24 full page illustrations, right after the story ends. When the reader reaches the end to the story, they'll understand why I put them there. :)

If you get a .wav file of a toilet flushing, then yes. yes you can.

If I remember it right, its only about five commands. You can google it and it'll tell you step by step how.
